The restaurants and shops are all very walkable. We enjoyed our stay particularly the simple breakfast in the spacious dining area next to th open courtyard. The room is nice overall but the lighting... More

Huge bedroom with air on, lovely big 4-poster bed and huge bathroom too with walk-in shower. Small toiletries bottles provided too. Breakfast was either local style (curry) enjoyed... More
